SPIRULINE FOUNTAIN in Confignon, Switzerland by BUREAU A

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: BUREAU A

The Spirulina Fountain displaces the culture of landscape architecture and gardening towards contemporary issues of land and urban farming in restrained areas. The fountain constitutes a hybrid, fusing the production basins of the intense blue-green algae with contemplative Italian gardens of the 16th century. More specifically, the form and dimensions of the fountain quotes the water cascades of the Villa Aldobrandini built in 1550 in Frascati, 20 km southeast of Rome.

Ballhaus in Graz, Austria by HoG architektur

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: HoG architektur

The new residential building Stadthaus Ballhausgasse fills a long-time void on this street in the historic city centre of Graz, Austria. The street facade interprets the design principals of the late 19th century using a contemporary language. The plasticity created by a game of light and shadow on the cornices, protruding windows and surrounding frames, as well as their arrangement, is achieved by the absorption and continuation of these elements in the new mirror-effect facade. A three-dimensional appearance, in the form of slightly inclined triangular surfaces, emerges and links the different cornice heights of the neighbouring buildings, thus making the reduced number of storeys, when compared to the late 19th century buildings, less clearly recognisable. The result is a differentiated interaction between facade and window surfaces on several levels, which reveal new details from different perspectives. As a representative view, reminiscent of the end of the 19th century, the street facade complex design and higher expenditure on materials contrasts with the unadorned courtyard facade.

The Gables in London, England by Patalab Architecture

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: Patalab Architecture

The Gables is the reinterpretation of a former commercial compound comprising a mechanic’s office and garage, tucked away in a private courtyard behind a terrace of period properties in Primrose Hill, North London. Landlocked, the site presented an enormous challenge in the reuse of the original footprint, which has created a wonderful lateral two floor family home.

FARM SURROUNDINGS in Catalonia, Spain by Arnau Vergés Tejero – Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: Arnau Vergés Tejero – Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

The internal refurbishing of a farm barn, so that a new generation of farmers can live there, grows to the point of becoming this zoning ordinance project. Such process will lead us to think about the set of huts, sheds, walls and paths which have settled in country houses through the years, and now we need to understand before we work on them, as there has been so little, maybe nothing, done in vain. A set of parts which have shaped the area, corners and tiny squares with the romantic essence of small towns.

House in Ávila, Spain by Claudia Olalla Gil

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Article source: Claudia Olalla Gil

Located at a high altitude (1200 meters above sea level), Las Navas del Marqués is characterized by cold winters and mild summers, which determine a low annual average temperature (10 ° C).

Taking advantage of the views of the valley of San Miguel coincident with the best orientation (south west), the house opens into the views and closes as much as possible to the north, avoiding energy losses.
